Take Action!
Fast-food chain Steak ‘n Shake is airing a new ad featuring a young chimpanzee in a tuxedo.
Typical training methods for chimpanzees and other great apes used for entertainment—who are taken away from their mothers shortly after birth—include kicking, beatings with clubs, psychological abuse and intimidation to make the animals perform on cue.
Supporting animal actors is supporting animal abuse. Urge Steak N Shake to pull the ad and pledge to never use great apes in future ads!
